From 19 September 2015 to 3 January 2016 the exhibition Expedition land art is being held at Kunsthal KAdE in Amersfoort, the Netherlands. In this exhibition the main emphasis is on six pioneering land artists (Nancy Holt, Robert Smithson, Walter De Maria, James Turrell, Richard Long and Marinus Boezem) and their influence on a younger generation (Francis Alÿs, Tacita Dean, Mario Garcia Torres, Zeger Reyers, Pierre Bismuth and Lara Almarcegui).

Expedition land art marks the publication of a book by the same name written by Sandra Smallenburg. She is also the guest curator of the exhibition. 

The Mondriaan Fund contributed to this exhibition via a project investment for organisations, in Dutch: Projectinvestering Erfgoed- en Beeldende Kunstinstellingen.
